Tempted at Pawn Shop

Stopped by a local pawn shop and they had a P345 used and neglected, but I could see that it would clean up nicely.
They wanted $300, but were willing to dicker.
I don't need need two so I muscled up and walked out.
I keep telling myself to let it go, but I do have $250 I could offer....
Just my luck that I get the P345 and that just right P90 I've been waiting on will pop up. I think I'll let it go.

Are you looking for a P90? Might know where there is one.

Walk and get what you really want. I think you made the right move.

I agree. Spend the money on the one you really want and skip the others that milk your money and then you still want the P-90. I got my P-90 from a security guard along with his service holster. Waiting will always be worth the prize later!

Tuff call,
I have both and they are both great.
The 90 is of course the classic of the two, but if weight is a factor, there is certainly nothing wrong with a 345. Especially if it could be had for $250

P90 or P345 waiting to find one at my LGS. Either one would suite me just fine.

I have both, along with all their brothers from the 85 to the 345. I vote just wait for the 90, its worth the wait. Only thing I dislike about my 345 is the magazine disconnect that keeps it from firing without a magazine, but I removed mine anyways, so it will fire without a mag. But out of the 2 the 90 is my favorite. I have a fondness for my 97 too also chambered in 45acp, all three are great pistols. Goodluck!

Wait for a P90, you'll be glad you did.

I would take the P345 for $300 myself, but I am naive in a lot of ways. Just call me a sucker, I don't care.

If I didn't already have one I would have bought this one, too. No sucker about it.
